    What ball do you game? What is your swing speed? What flex shaft do you use?

    Curiosity has me

    What ball do you game? What is your swing speed? What flex shaft do you use?

    I'm curious

    I prefer the Snell MTB Black.  I have tried the Bridgestone Tour BX.  My typical "game" swing speed is about 108-110.  The driver that just cracked sounded and "acted" weird from the first ball.  I am thinking that I just had a "luck of the draw" bad head with that one.  Ping is sending a replacement.

    I’ve had the same thing, twice. I have the g400 lst and Ping replaced it last year as I had 3 hairline fractures in the toe. This week I’ve noticed the exact same thing happen the the replacement head so sending it back today.

    I had two G400 LSTs crack and the G410 LST that Ping sent just got a hairline fracture on the toe side of the face.  They have been good about replacing, but it is a bit concerning.

  3. Gratton Stephens: Quinton, VA

    I typically practice putting 3-5 times per week approximately 30 minutes per session and play 2-3 times per week (weather permitting).  

    I  average less than one three putt per two rounds.

    Tech that gives analytical feedback that is instantly digestible and actionable is great.  I have used the Tomi Pro system in the past and have a putting green in my basement along with my Mitchell fitting shop that includes a digital putting loft and lie machine.  I am especially interested in how the "slope and speed" feature works on the Exputt.  I would be able to make adjustments to my putter loft and lie using the information from the Exputt to test how well the Exputt can help dial in a putter.  If the Exputt is truly "Hassle Free" and delivers accurate feedback, this would be a terrific addition to any serious golfer's routine.

    If desired, I could likely recruit several players of various skills and use the system to analyze and hopefully help them improve (who doesn't like free analysis..LOL).  I don't randomly ask to act as a Tester, but this particular test is one that I feel well equipped to give feedback.

    Happy Independence Day!



  4. Mizuno T20:  I am really enjoying my MP20s, so I met with my Mizuno fitter (Mulligans in Richmond VA) and we fit me for 3 T20s Satin finish.  Jay (the fitter) took ample time to let me hit multiple wedge configurations using a lie board and fitting tape while hitting outdoors.  We went with S Grind 50/07, M Grind 54/12 and C Grind 59/09 to create diversity in the grinds.  I have a shop, so I can tweak the 54's grind a little if needed, but we did our best to fit based on the prevalent conditions in my home area. I was carrying a 52/56/60 set gapping, so it will be interesting how these work.  I am hitting my MP20s with DG X100s, so we matched them up with DG S400 for shaft weight to help keep the swing weight reasonable (all my clubs are plus 3/4").  

    I will post a "review" when I get them and put them in play.

    I remember when i was getting fitted and i hit the second ball flush, my fitter laughed cause my face just lit up like a kid in a candy store.

    LOL.... I remember my first fitting with my MP57s and the even better feeling with the new MP 20s.

    My mind is blown that there's only 117 responses to this thread, so maybe 90 applicants so far?  
    Who doesn't want a full bag of Cobras plus the bag?  ?!?!

    LOL,  I can't in good conscience as I just got new clubs and typically prefer 1" longer.  I wouldn't want to take an opportunity from someone who could really benefit.  I will keep my eyes peeled for other review opportunities.  🙂

  7. UPDATE:  Mizuno MP20 Performance   After a couple rounds, I "got in the dirt" at the range and made a swing tweak that "unlocked" my MP 20s.  I played two rounds at an old school layout course only using irons, wedges and putter to force me to use all of my new irons.  I am even happier with the MP20s now after putting in the work.  My misses are staying in play and I am flushing a higher percentage of my shots.  I am excited to get out an play them again as soon as possible.  I know these aren't for everyone, but encourage everyone to get fit and find clubs that make you want to get better while helping you enjoy the challenge that is golf.  These clubs are inspiring me to work to play better and I am having a blast in the process.

  8. Played my Mizuno MP20s for the first time today in a club tournament.  I was trying to be a little "too smooth" on the first 8 holes.  After that I got a rhythm and they feel really good.  I didn't have a good scoring day due to some bad luck and a few mistakes, but I am very happy with how the MP20s performed.  My "over draws" were not there today and missed shots stayed on line.  I am very impressed coming from MP 57s at the tighter dispersion and I am getting the same distance.

    MP20 blades best feeling irons I’ve ever played which deserve the “nothing feels like a Mizuno” tag

    I just got a set of MP20s today.  I hit them on the range and they are in my bag for a tournament tomorrow.  They feel great!  I was playing MP57s that were about 13 or so years old.  I will report back on how they play vs. my old set tomorrow.

  10. Hi,  I like the extra storage a cart bag provides, but many of the ranges/courses I frequent don't have readily accessible bag stands.  I really like having the ability to set my bag down with stand legs.  I have been using the Sun Mountain C130-S bag for a few years and really like it.  

    Who prefers Hybrid Bags?  Maybe we could get a review on them if there are enough of them to review...LOL

    I am getting a new bag to go with new MP20s that are on order and am open to suggestions.

    Any issues with the liners separating the clubs? 

    I have used a C130 Stand bag for the past two years and have no issues with the liners so far.  I really like the bag and it has held up well.  I would try the PING bag if they had a hybrid type bag.

    I did my certification through the NASM golf fitness program just because I was also taking my Certified Personal Trainer certification through them as well, but from what I’ve seen of the two programs they are extremely similar with a lot of the differences being in the wording and references they use.

    Cool.  I will have my trainer check out the NASM program.  Thanks!!

    Put some masking tape on the top of the grip so not only is it a visual reminder but you will likely feel the texture difference when you grip it full for a reminder.

    Great suggestion!

    That's impressive; send me a PM with your donation transaction and we'll get that badge right away. As for the others: pick two, and we'll get those up as well!

    I guess, broke 80 and the Hole In One. LOL, mostly want the badges to show I am engaged.  I have been monitoring the main site since 2011 and wanted to do more to support and engage.  Great work by the MGS team!!
